Let’s travel to Aruba…….Aruba is an independent country in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, with a population of approximately 100,000. The island is 21 miles (33km) long and has an area of about 75 square miles (193 km2).
Temperature: If you are planning a trip to Aruba, you can count on plenty of sunshine. However, there is a “rain” season in which sometimes heavy showers can surprise you. Rainfall averages about eighteen inches a year, with October, November, December and January accounting for most of it. Even then rains tend to be erratic and in short bursts.
Let’s travel to 3 of Aruba’s Beaches…..
There’s plenty to do in Aruba. To the numerous carnivals, duty free shopping malls all across the island.
